Schurman Home Destroyed By Sewage

Hello everyone on Facebook, my name is Matthew Patton (Patter). I have a family that is very close to me who needs help. Their basement was destroyed by a city sewage back up in Otsego, Michigan. They are having issues with insurance due to the fact they do not have "sewage insurance". They have city water and are connected to a sewer system so that kind of insurance isn't normally needed for their situation. Bob and Jeanette Schurman are in need of a new washer and dryer, furnace, hot water heater, water softener, bathtub, sink, and toilet. Any monetary donation will help. News coverage below:
